The purpose of this lab is to study the motion of a simple Pendulum. In Study 1 you will use a pendulum of fixed length and vary the mass to determine whether the period of a pendulum depends on the mass of the bob at the end of the string. In Study 2 you will use a fixed mass and change the length of the pendulum to determine the relationship between the pendulum length and the period of the pendulum. In Study 3 you will use your simple pendulum to determine the value of g, the acceleration of...

This article looks at the link between the work that Leonardo da Vinci and Galileo both did on the motion of a pendulum. The history relating to Leonardo da Pisa is mentioned as well. Galileo's Times-Squared Law and his pin and pendulum experiment is discussed. Refer to the paper "Galileo and the Inclined Plane" for a description as to how Galileo discovered his times-squared law. It is past time, excuse the pun, to the update the history of the discovery of isochronism of the...

In this article the period of a simple pendulum is derived using pre-calculus kinematics. This heurtistic approach is a good introduction to for non-calculus students to the kinematics of a simple pendulum. Mention is made of the early experiments of Leonardo da Vinci and of Galileo Galilei. Lagrange and Einstein.

The period of a pendulum in a resistive medium is derived. The value for the resistive constant k is determined using the fractional variation in the period of the pendulum. This paper was written in 1981. The manuscript remained lost in the authorĂ¢s papers for years, until recently rediscovered with other manuscripts.

Topics: Pendulum, resistive medium, k the resistive constant, second order differential equation, constant...
